Re: Products you need !

A water\rinse additive that will actually get rid of that funky smell from wetsuit booties.

Re: Who Bought WMFG?

TIP: When I bought my WMFG pump, I got a very good piece of advice from the widely respected local "Murph". He told me to go buy some hockey stick cloth tape and run it around the six inches of each end of the hose. I did and it has served me well so far. Thought I would pass on this wise wisdom. Ch...

Re: Kite Snorkeling - lets talk about it!

I always figured that putting on some polarized glasses and kiting out to a reef (or near a kelp bed) was a good way to check visibility. If good vis, kite back to shore, grab the freediving gear and swim out and hunt for fish for tacos!

Re: Washington DC kite spots

Having lived in DC and the Outer Banks back in the day, it's well worth the 5 hour drive to get to Coastal Carolina. But as the other poster mentioned do watch your speed....the sheriff,s dont mess around.

Re: Cuba or Colombia in March

The one day I was free of obligations and able to try and Kite I headed down to that beach and spoke with ...

Re: St. Thomas / USVI Spots?

I lived on St Thomas back in the early 1990's. There is inconsistent but really good surf there mid winter if you know where to look. Unfortunately, the winds are better on the East side of the island. When the waves were down i would go windsurfing and i found the winds best around Red Hook. Plan t...

Re: Naish Repair Hack

So there is a slow leak when the top screw lid is closed? Or when it is open? Did you try to just blow little on it in case there is sand stuck down there? Top The leak was from between the valve seat and the main screw (not the top screw-lid which was closed). Admittedly I did not attempt to blow ...

Re: Naish Repair Hack

Hey Chirojoseph, My last kite session I had the same problem with my Naish 12M Pivot. I did the bubble test this morning and found the same thing you did, a very slow leak at the main inflation valve. Could you kindly expand on how you resolved the issue? I am hesitant "rip apart" anything. Your exp...
